Celebrate National Bike Month at Walmart

Did you know that May is National Bike Month? I sure didn't but then again I don't know how to ride a bike. Shameful I know. But when I was younger riding a bike didn't seem that important. I had other things I wanted to do. Now as an adult I can be see the benefits to bike riding. Biking is a great way for families to get exercise. It's also a great way to spend time together.

Now that my son is growing older, I want to make sure he learns how to ride a bike. Yes it's about him doing something fun but it's also about teaching him about healthy activities.

Did you know that bicycling is the second most popular outdoor activity in America? As show by the below infographic, between 2001 and 2009, cycling rates rose fastest among African Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans. This is good news since obesity disproportionately affects African American children in the United States.

By helping my son find ways to be active, I hope to avoid the childhood obesity issue. I think getting a bike and learning to ride as a family would be a good thing. One company who's also agrees is Walmart. Did you know that 66.4% of bikes sold at Walmart last year were kids bikes and that top-selling bikes at Walmart were pink, black, red and blue?
